Florida Panthers Alumni Association Distributes $3,500 In Youth Hockey Scholarships
\u2028Seven scholarships granted to four separate youth hockey organizations. Next Alumni Try Hockey Clinic held Feb. 8 at Palm Beach Ice Works.

SUNRISE, Fla. – Sunrise Sports & Entertainment announced today that the Florida Panthers Alumni Association has donated $3,500 in new youth hockey scholarships for the winter youth hockey travel and the high school season, helping seven ­local high school and travel hockey players. The Panthers Alumni Association has donated over $300,000 to youth hockey players and programs who could not afford the ice time and equipment required to otherwise play the game.

The awardees come from travel programs and leagues around the South Florida area and were granted based on academic merit, financial need and community involvement rather than their skills or talent on the ice.

“The Alumni Association believes it is important to support youth hockey in South Florida and create the next generation of community leaders whose first lessons in leadership will come at the hockey rink,” said Alumni Association President Randy Moller. “We hope that these scholarships will help in growing the players’ love for the game both on and off the ice.”

The Panthers Alumni Association grants scholarships twice a year, in August and December. For the December grant period, scholarships were awarded to players in the Florida Scholastic High School League, the Palm Beach Blackhawks, the Florida Alliance and the Golden Wolves.

The Alumni Association will host their fourth “Try Hockey” Clinic on Saturday, Feb. 8 at Palm Beach Ice Works in West Palm Beach. Intended for first time hockey participants, the Clinic is open for kids (4:45 p.m.) and adults (5:45 p.m.). The Clinics feature former Panthers stars, such as Bill Lindsay and Bryan McCabe, teaching the game of hockey.

Hosted at the Panthers Rink Coalition arenas, the final Try Hockey Clinic of the season will be held March 8 at the Glacier Ice and Snow Arena at 5:20 p.m. for kids and 6:30 p.m. for adults.
